Can’t Do Crap (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention or CDC nickname)

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is, according to Wikipedia, the leading national public health institute of the United States. Some people, however, believe that the CDC is ineffective. “CDC=Can’t Do Crap” was posted on Twitter by Truthbetold? on November 8, 2019.

The 2019-20 coronavirus outbreak popularized the nickname. “I guess the CDC under Trump stands for: Can’t Do Crap” was posted on Twitter by Lois Phillips on March 1, 2020. “CDC aka Can’t Do Crap” was posted on Twitter by RipTornPanda on March 3, 2020.

Other CDC nicknames include “Center for Death and Chaos,” “Center for Death and Corruption,” “Center for Death Control” and “Center for Disease Creation.”


Wikipedia: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is the leading national public health institute of the United States. It is a United States federal agency, under the Department of Health and Human Services, and is headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia.

Its main goal is to protect public health and safety through the control and prevention of disease, injury, and disability in the US and internationally.[3] The CDC focuses national attention on developing and applying disease control and prevention. It especially focuses its attention on infectious disease, food borne pathogens, environmental health, occupational safety and health, health promotion, injury prevention and educational activities designed to improve the health of United States citizens.

CDC stands for Can’t Do Crap. They certainly aren’t helping anyone cope with coronavirus.

The lack of CDC testing is a scandal. The flaws in the tests are a scandal. They can scrub their website but I tell you New York State is ready to do 1000 tests a day with results available on 12 hours. #CoronaOutbreak https://twitter.com/JuddLegum/status/1234536619270688768

JUST IN: @sanjaygupta says CDC has loosened its guidelines to allow health care workers who have been exposed to COVID-19 to continue working as long as they wear a mask.
...and if they run out of masks, use a scarf or bandana.
“This is concerning.”
